An alleged witch was forced to repent on local TV as part of campaign by a local pro-Vladimir Putin strongman to wipe out sorcery.

Sekinat Ibragimova was popular in Chechnya where locals asked her to cast spells on former spouses or seek help passing exams.

But as part of a campaign against wizardry by local ruler Ramzan Kadyrov, she was detained and publicly shamed.
